|About the Coaching Program|
The Empowerment Life Coaching program is designed to help you to create your life as you want it. The program will help you to create a powerful vision for your life, rooted in your personal values and aspirations, and with the support of tools and personal coaching.
The Empowerment method is based on the premise that our thoughts and beliefs strongly influence the conditions of our life. Thus, the program focuses on the development of self-awareness, perspective transformation and behavior change, motivated by clarity of vision and systematic development of new beliefs, attainable goals and positive habits of mind.
At different times in our lives we all feel that we are not living as richly or as fully as we could be. We feel stagnant or unfulfilled but don’t know how to change that. Coaching provides the guidance you need to develop a comprehensive vision for your life and the tools required for translating that vision into reality. In essence, coaching empowers you to regain sovereignty over yourself and to build a life that reflects your own values, truths and deeper purpose.
During the program you will work in seven areas of life: relationships, work, money, the body, sexuality, emotions and spirituality. Our culture is primarily pathologically based - focusing on what is wrong with a person. This holistic approach promotes healthy, balanced and integrated personal development.
Distinctions Between Coaching and Therapy
Coaching helps you to envision what you most desire and gives you the tools/techniques to create it. Unlike therapy, the primary focus is on vision, not on pathology or on the healing of old wounds. In coaching work, you will acknowledge old wounds and limiting beliefs, but you will not dwell there. The focus of this work is on expanding your sense of possibility and generating the motivation and confidence you need to live more fully.
12 one-hour weekly sessions are conducted either in person or by phone. Each session builds upon what is learned in previous sessions and upon readings and exercises completed between sessions.
My fee is $100 per hour. You will initially be required to commit to 3 sessions. If, upon completion of 3 sessions, you wish to continue with the program, you will be asked to commit to the remainder of the program, paying in full or as you go.
Program Track Record/ Effectiveness
The Empowerment program is based on the pioneering work of David Gershon and Gail Straub. It is built upon 20 years of research and training work and training workshops and has been proven to be highly effective.
My Qualifications and Motivation
I have been trained by David Gershon and Gail Straub and am certified as an Empowerment Life Coach. I am also a graduate of the Anthony Robbins Mastery University and have participated in their VIP Life Coaching program for 2 years. As an active member of Contemplative Outreach since 1985, I also have substantive knowledge and extensive experiential practice in the area of Spiritual Development, rooted in my own commitment to living a contemplative lifestyle in a very active life.
In both the retreat work and coaching, I am motivated by a deep desire to help others learn and grow, expand their sense of possibility and reach their own highest potential. This motivation is inspired, in part, by my own long and fruitful journey toward greater self-knowledge and actualization. I seek to live my life consciously, fully and joyfully, and enjoy supporting others as they seek the same.

|"As the empowerment sessions progressed, I realized more and more how far I had strayed from my life passions. In her graceful and wise ways, Cathy used her skills and life experiences to gently guide me to rediscover and pursue my passion to write and teach. My dreamlife which had all but died out became active and fruitful."
"Empowerment Life Coaching was like “spring cleaning” for my soul. After a season of being overly focused on my work and not having the time to grieve the deaths of two close friends my spiritual practices were not enough to get me unstuck. I was unclear about so many things. I wondered if I was depressed. I had no energy for life.
Cathy is a powerful mentor. Her questions and comments, though challenging at times always bore fruit as I continued doing the assigned reading and activities. Through developing vision, becoming aware of my thoughts and changing limiting beliefs I witnessed my life energy and circumstances change.
My life is just as complicated as before but there is joy, energy and a sense that my thoughts and attitudes set the course much more than I realized before. I am back in a flow of grace that I know is a direct result of working this program. I am grateful for the Empowerment Life Coaching program and Cathy."

"The benefits and fruits of my experience of Empowerment Life Coaching with Cathy McCarthy are still unfolding in my life. I went through the process via telephone and still found it very powerful. The guided visualizations and the creation of affirmations opened up space in my life towards positive change. I found the recognizing and eventual letting go of limiting beliefs very inspiring. It has helped me balance my creativity and responsibilities. Cathy is a very clear, concise and caring coach. Her gift of conscious listening enabled me to see the areas of my life that needed attention and growth."
